Our topic during the summer term is 'Global Gardens'.

In history we will be learning about famous naturalists, botanists and environmentalists. We will learn about how they have influenced our thinking about plants and how we protect the world around us. We will focus on changes in living memory.

In Geography, we will be focusing on seasonal and daily weather patterns in the UK. We will also take a journey to investigate where food comes from. Then we will learn about the physical and human features of a location.

In Science, our topics for this term are seasonal changes, plants and animals. We will look at how the weather changes during the seasons in the UK and other countries. We then look at the parts of plants and how they grow. We will identify those plants than can and cannot be eaten. Finally, we will learn about animals, their off-spring and habitats.

English
Throughout the term we will look at stories related to the seasons, food and plants. We will use 'The World Came to My Place by Jo Readman' as a stimulus for some of our work. We will also be looking at poetry, reciting poems and writing their own. We will be developing spelling rules when the suffixes -ing and -ed and prefix un- are added to a root word.

Maths
At the beginning of term, we will focus on money and use it to improve addition and subtraction. After we will begin to learn about multiplication and division in preparation for times tables in year 2. Then we will learn about fractions, investigating halves and quarters of shapes and amounts.
